Camí Pesseroles is located off any ancient path between Gratallops and Porrera in a valley called Pesseroles, this wine is a belnd of 60% massale selection Garnache and 40% old vines Carinena grow on sheer slopes. The steep rocky slope imparts a powerful mineral quality to the wine aswell as great overall intensity. A serious joy, initially brooding but with aeration the palate abounds with red fruits such as sloe, damson and refreshing cranberry notes, also revealing touches of blueberry, oriental spice and faint liquorice nuances thjat overlayintense salt and mineral characteristics. Pure, gripping and built to last.

Wine Advocate # 211. Feb 2014. Reviewer : Luis Gutierrez - The 2010 Cami Pesseroles is a very old vineyard planted in 1920 with 60% Carinena and 40% Garnacha. This wine ages in barriques (according to Sara Perez, not all wines work in terracotta jars, this being one of them) and has a nose with more black fruit, blackberries, morello cherries, slate and tar, with some lovely rusticity. It has superb acidity which gives it an electric feeling. The tannins are very fine. An elegant, fresh and pleasant blend showing the true character of Carinena. Drink 2014-2020.

Vinous/Antonio Galloni (2006)93 pts

Sep/Oct 09. By Josh Raynolds. (a 60/40 blend of grenache and carignan) Vivid ruby. Smoky red and dark berries on the nose, with sexy notes of Asian spices and potpourri lending an exotic quality. Deep red and dark berry flavors show liqueur-like depth and power, with zesty mineral and spice notes providing energy. Impressively lithe for a powerful wine, finishing with impressive lift and spicy persistence. This won't let go of the palate.

Issue: Nov 30, 2009.Smoky, toasty oak aromas give way to lively fruit flavors of cherry and blackberry in this expressive red, which has a velvety texture, with firm underlying tannins. Kirsch and black pepper notes emerge on the long finish. Drink now through 2018. 200 cases made. ?TM.
